Nesting of the Buff-throated Woodcreeper (Xiphorhynchus guttatus)

Buff-throated Woodcreeper (Xiphorhynchus guttatus) Science Article 1


The Buff-throated Woodcreeper (Xiphorhynchugsu ttatus) is about 22 cm long and clad in the browns and buffs widespread in its family. The sexes are alike. From Guatemala to Bolivia, Amazonian and southeastern Brazil, it inhabits rain forests, humid gallery forests in more arid regions, and mangroves. It wanders into lighter second-growth woods and shady clearings near the old forests that are its true home. These woodcreepers usually are solitary, or one may join a mixed flock of woodland birds.
